ਨਾਮਦੇਵ ਜੀ ॥
ਮੈ ਅੰਧ੝ਲੇ ਕੀ ਟੇਕ ਤੇਰਾ ਨਾਮ੝ ਖ੝ੰਦਕਾਰਾ ॥ ਮੈ ਗਰੀਬ ਮੈ ਮਸਕੀਨ ਤੇਰਾ ਨਾਮ੝ ਹੈ ਅਧਾਰਾ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥
ਕਰੀਮਾਂ ਰਹੀਮਾਂ ਅਲਾਹ ਤੂ ਗਨੀ ॥ ਹਾਜਰਾ ਹਜੂਰਿ ਦਰਿ ਪੇਸਿ ਤੂੰ ਮਨੀ ॥੧॥
ਦਰੀਆਉ ਤੂ ਦਿਹੰਦ ਤੂ ਬਿਸੀਆਰ ਤੂ ਧਨੀ ॥ ਦੇਹਿ ਲੇਹਿ ਝਕ੝ ਤੂੰ ਦਿਗਰ ਕੋ ਨਹੀ ॥੨॥
ਤੂੰ ਦਾਨਾਂ ਤੂੰ ਬੀਨਾਂ ਮੈ ਬੀਚਾਰ੝ ਕਿਆ ਕਰੀ ॥ ਨਾਮੇ ਚੇ ਸ੝ਆਮੀ ਬਖਸੰਦ ਤੂੰ ਹਰੀ ॥੩॥੧॥੨॥

Naam Dayv Jee:
I am blind; Your Name, O Creator Lord, is my only anchor and support. I am poor, and I am meek. Your Name is my only support. ||1||Pause||
O beautiful Lord, benevolent and merciful Lord, You are so wealthy and generous. You are ever-present in every presence, within and before me. ||1||
You are the river of life, You are the Giver of all; You are so very wealthy. You alone give, and You alone take away; there is no other at all. ||2||
You are wise, You are the supreme seer; how could I make You an object of thought? O Lord and Master of Naam Dayv, You are the merciful Lord of forgiveness. ||3||1||2||

Explaination: This is a shabad by Bhagat Namdev who you may know was a calico printer/tailor and part of his householder's life involved the washing of clothes. The first line of this shabad refers to a the Naam as a "khundhkara" which is the name given to the platform on to which the clothes are struck to get them clean - it is like the anvil onto which hot metal is rested to be struck with a hammer - Bhagat ji says that the Lord's name and remembrance is like this platform on to which the mind can be stuck to purify it - just like the clothes when they hit this platform get cleansed - striking or reciting the Naam cleanses the mind and purifies the person.

Bhagat ji says: "Mai andhulae kee tak" - For this blind person, my only prop or resort is "tara naam khundhkara" your support (platform) in the form of your Naam; that is my only anchor.

"mai gareb mai masaken", I am poor and long suffering; "thara naam hai adhara" your Name is of any credit or value; it is the only solid support I can rely on.

"karema rehema alah thoo ganee" Creator, merciful the Lord you are unique; "hajura hajoor dhar paes thoo manee" ever-present, present in the Court; in the mind.

"dhareao thoo dhihendh thoo bisear thoo dhanee" Ocean is You; You ever watchful; widespread and wealthy; "dhaha laha eak thoo dheger ko nahee" Giver and taker only one; there no other.

"thoo dhana thoo beena mai bechaar kia karee" you're Donor; you're seer; what can humble me do? "naama chae suamee bakshandh thoo hari" Namdev's master is the bless-ful Hari!
